Article: NVIDIA Stops Production of GeForce GTX 580

  1. NVIDIA Stops Production of GeForce GTX 580

    4 Comments by sacha35 Published on 14-04-2012
    NVIDIA reportedly stopped production of GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards. Launched in November, 2010, the GeForce GTX 580 had been the fastest single-GPU graphics card for an year, before AMD responded with Radeon HD 7900 series. With launch of the GeForce GTX 680, and volumes of 28 nm chip production at TSMC looking positive, GeForce GTX 580 served its purpose. NVIDIA can stop production and leave remaining inventories get gradually digested by the market. NVIDIA had already stopped production of GeForce GTX 590.

    I dont see why these products cant go through a die shrink and added into mid range desktop or high end mobile gpus's - shame they get terminated this way,

    But then you might get a bargain before all the stock goes.

    Time to grab a 580 bargain.

    Yes i would have thought that the big N could have extended the life of the 580 and used it in it`s lower range of hardware.Still i suppose that`s progress and a top line card is soon replaced.

    Good points, thinking about it a bit more - the 680 (which is really a 660 badged 680 as it performs better than the radeons) if you die shranks the 580 and was able to get higher clocks on a lower tech node, it may actually perform better than the new flagship at 1080p - but most of the modbile gpu's are fermi die shrinks, the opportunity was to take the mobile market by storm.

    Ah well, our's is not to reason why
